Entry requirements

We believe in the importance of inter-disciplinary study and are keen to ensure diversity of skills among the student cohort. An undergraduate law degree (minimum 2:2) is usually necessary for meeting our entry requirements; however graduates from related disciplines may still apply for an LLM degree if we can be convinced that they possess the skills to study law at a Masters level. Those without a law background would be required to undertake a course entitled 'Introduction to the Law' during induction week. In appropriate cases, we also ask for an IELTS score of 6.5.
